Our trip that we took to San Antonio the weekend before school started was:
We visited Fiesta, Texas (a Six Flags theme park) as well as White Water Bay (the park’s waterpark), strolled along the Riverwalk, sampled a few restaurants, and got a chance to tour San Antonio’s recently renovated Children’s Museum, the DoSeum (pronounced “doo”seum, as in let’s go “do” something fun!). The museum was PHENOMENAL and I am anxious to go back again just to spend more time there. It’s clean, spacious, engaging, beautiful, and soul-freeing. I really didn’t expect such amazement from a children’s museum! We ran through it quickly because we arrived about an hour before closing. The museum is full of adventure, and I won’t even try to list all the features, but here are a few of my favorites:
toddler area – I LOVED the trolley and the airplane in the tot area, and I appreciate that older kids are allowed in this area too (unlike the Tot Spot at the Children’s Museum of Houston).
Reading Lab – beautiful, bright book room with reading pods, plenty books
Outdoor garden area – water features, a treehouse, a stream the kids can walk through bare feet
